Delhi 2020 religious riots: Amnesty International accuses police of rights abuses

Ns News Online Desk:Ns News Online Desk: Indian police “committed serious human rights violations” during deadly religious riots in Delhi earlier this year, Amnesty International alleges.
It said police beat protesters, tortured detainees and at times took part in riots with Hindu mobs.
More than 40 people died when clashes broke out between Hindus and Muslims over a controversial citizenship law. Muslims bore the brunt, Amnesty said.
The Delhi police are yet to respond to Amnesty’s request for a response.
The investigation corroborates the BBC’s reporting on incidents of police brutality and complicity during the riots in February, the deadliest in the city for decades. The police denied any wrongdoing. The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) – which critics say is anti-Muslim – sparked massive protests across India after it was passed last year.
One such demonstration in Delhi turned violent – clashes broke out between protesters for and against the law.
